Scirocco Ethical Sales Management has been established in Menfi (AG), Sicily, by Samantha Di Laura with the aim of helping Sicilian growers to create value for their products.
Samantha Di Laura has an expansive experience in the Italian and international food and wine market. A the age of only 25, she began working as Export Area Manager for Euricom S.p.A. (Curtiriso), the largest European rice company of that period, in charge of the Middle East market and the development of the extra-European one. At the age of 31, she was called to Seville by Ebrofoods (Herba Ricemills), where she deepened the Brand Management and the coordination of a network of international exports. Diego Planeta led her to Sicily in Settesoli Winery, that she left to establish Scirocco Ethical.
In October 2016, she started his own project OLIOVE, with the specific aim of protecting, promoting and spreading the culture of high quality, ethic and sustainable extra virgin olive oil. Sicilian, first of all. A product with unbelievable nutraceutical properties.
Man is always at the centre of our strategies, from the farmer, who requires the fair compensation for his work, to people who use the product to take pleasure and health from it.
Our will is to expand our farm and production, by creating a network of young, ethical and "sustainable" farmers. Our dream is leaving this world a little better than how we have found it.
And we’d like to do it also through our work and the people we choose to cooperate with.
Because we love our land!
